[5.25/10] Code 8 (2019)

Code 8 (2019)

Quick Review: Putting a fresh spin on 'superpowers', if hardly matching its ambitions in terms of execution, "Code 8" kind of avoids most tropes we have used to see in comic book films of this genre, and yet, despite its potential, well-conceived futuristic scenario, a fairly engaging lead turn from Robbie Amell, and basic if neat plotting, whose rather dramatic story even packs some emotional punch, this low-on-action sci-fi crime thriller is so vanilla, you can barely taste its bland 'superhero' flavor.

Glad you did. Yes, it was well-shot, but rather underwhelming.
